TUITION & FEES

At California College of Music, we believe that an excellent college music education should be affordable for all students.  A quick comparison with other institutions will show that our tuition is much less expensive than comparable private music colleges, which often charge more than $40,000 per year for tuition alone.  In order to help alleviate the student debt crisis in the United States, and create a society which includes more musicians who are economically empowered, California College of Music has set tuition costs that are (by far) the lowest among comparable schools.  Click below to view our tuition costs & other student fees:
